James Dargan, baritone and violin

Yes, I came back for more. (Smooches to James! :) )

My friend, James Dargan, gave a violin and voice recital last Tuesday, August 11. It was a lovely evening of beautiful music amongst friends. It took place at Corasdaile Village, and the attendance was quite phenomenal. Those people pretty much watched James grow into a poised young man, so I'm sure it was a special treat to hear him play and sing.

Accompanined by J. Samuel Hammond on piano, James presented works by Bach, Fauré, Bellini, Tosti, Schubert, Butterworth, Finzi, Rasbach, Danzing, Rogers and Hammerstein, and Lerner and Loewe.

With that, the program.
